My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Smart, funny, witty, adventurous (and relatively decent looking) guy seeks same for fun and adventure. That reads like a bad dating advertisement from the dating section of the newspaper (does anyone read newspapers anymore?) but it about sums up the situation. I'm the kind of guy who can settle into a couch with a rom com or bad action movie (or Glamour or Outside magazine) as well as hit a trail for 10 miles or do an adventure race and toss back a few pints after with friends. I've been known to hit the dance floor (badly), play pool for a few hours or rock out to a great live band on the right evening. And, if forced, I'll choose Loveshack, Sweet Caroline or Bon Jovi when it's my turn on the karaoke mic.

I'm more interested in doing lots of things than specializing in just a few. I want to go on backpacking trips, mountain biking trips, visit museums, learn about the history of what has happened in our pasts. I'm interested in traveling and exploring this big round 3rd rock from the sun. I love to read, not to discuss them in book clubs but for fun. Cooking, gardening, playing are all hobbies of mine. Movies and music are great, unless they are too intense or country! I have a serious weak spot for any and all things caramel related.

I'm interested in someone who can quote movies, understand sarcastic comments, laugh, enjoy a good drink (or 3) and loves to make time for the fun stuff. It would also be good if you were a strong type of person; I can tend to be a dominant personality (not like that. Shame on you! LOL!) and need someone who can give it back to me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Raise good kids, trying to have as much fun as possible, make a difference and generally leave my mark on the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm, isn't it kind of blowhardy to list the things you're good at on your own?

Oh, I guess sarcasm would be one.

Food shows
These are what jump to mind but I can go through my Netflix Q if you would like! ;-)

I like all music but country for the most part.

I'm in love with Asian food and Asian culture. Especially Thai food.

Books? The list is long. Really long. A lot of classic lit as well as recent fiction by Steve Berry, Ken Follett and others.
Love non fiction (because I love to learn) especially Michael Pollen and James Howard Kunstler
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kids
My iPhone (and they are interchangeable depending on the day! LOL!)
Good ingredients for cooking
Places to explore
I'll leave the 6th open for now...maybe Thai food...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly? Probably work.
My next bike ride
Then my next meal!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out, or at home, or with my kids, or working. That about covers it. I don't think I have a typical Friday night!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Because you read through this really long profile and you owe it to yourself to at least talk to me and find out if I'm as cool as I sound!
